Chorizo Linguine

So in case I haven’t mentioned it before, my hubby is Portuguese. Therefore, I do try to incorporate some Portuguese ingredients into the meals that I cook. It’s not that difficult because I do love most of Portuguese food. I do say MOST because I’m not a huge fan of seafood and Portugal being a coastal country, well they eat a LOT of seafood. One of my favorite Portuguese recipes has to be Chorizo Sausage. I absolutely love it!  So… I recently made a pasta dish which included Chorizo Sausage and it turned out amazing! Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments!
